Teachers Day Special: My Teacher
In my school there are many teachers. Each one teaches us different subjects. Although all of them are fairly good, there is one teacher whom I love and admire the most. Her name is Atiya Khan Ma’am. She is the most pleasing personality that I have ever come across. She is an ideal teacher. She has all those qualities which a good teacher is expected to have.
Atiya Khan Ma’am is a Social Studies teacher. She loves the subject that she teaches and has an in-depth knowledge of it too. She teaches Social Studies almost as though it were a hobby class. She does not adopt the old methods of teaching. In fact we even forget at times that she is teaching us from our text books.
Social Studies comes alive in Atiya Khan Ma’am's class. When she teaches, no one talks about anything but the topic that she discusses. She has the ability to draw out attention to the subject and also to sustain it. She conducts various experiments in the class and demonstrates them thus making it much easier for us to understand what she teaches. She does not merely read from the book but gives us a concrete picture of everything, so that we see them before us.
Although her subject is Social Studies, Atiya Khan Ma’am has a good knowledge of other subjects also. She is well versed with all the current affairs of the world and she often links what we are studying to something that may have been taught somewhere else in the world. She encourages us to ask questions so that we may be able to understand the subject well. She never loses patience with those students who take long to grasp the subject.
Atiya Khan Ma’am gives personal attention to all the students. If, by chance, any student tries to play the fool in her class, she is firm and does not allow that to happen. She is a great combination of kindness and strictness. She encourages the students to ask each other and her anything with regard to the subject so that a healthy discussion generates new ideas and increases our curiosity about the subject.
She is very popular, but she is not conceited. She is courteous to her colleagues and the principal of the school. I have never seen her frown or lose her temper. She remains calm even when there is a crisis of any kind. She makes me love going to school. I always look forward to my Social Studies period.
She is an ideal teacher and provides the students with a good role model. I love her the most and hope to be like her one day.
